For some, a garage is a place to store your car. For others, it is a place to store unused exercise equipment. But for Craig Zoberis, the garage is the place he started his successful Burr Ridge business, Fusion OEM.
Fusion OEM is an equipment manufacturing company specializing in private labeling products for industrial automation. It manufactures products for the printing, packaging, medical and food-service industries. Fusion has also developed custom machines for clients ranging from the automotive to the electronics industries.
